During this session, Justin Reckers will walk you through the theory, practical application and actual preparation of a Lifestyle Analysis in Matrimonial Dissolution matters. Sometimes called Marital Standard of Living Analysis, the concept of Lifestyle Analytics can be used in support of alimony and child support cases as well as characterization of assets between marital and separate property and finally uncovering hidden assets. 

The session will first provide attendees with an overview of concepts supporting Lifestyle Analytics and examples of application from precedent cases and family code. Second, we will delve into strategic uses and how a CDFA professional can advocate for the use of the strategy in casework. Third, we will show you the tools we at Wellspring Divorce Advisors use to prepare Lifestyle Analytics and how to do it yourself when back in the office.
